Publisher's Summary

The Treasury of Precious Instructions by Jamgön Kongtrul Lodrö Taye, one of Tibet's greatest Buddhist masters, is a shining jewel of Tibetan literature, presenting essential teachings from the entire spectrum of practice lineages that existed in Tibet. In its 18 volumes, Kongtrul brings together some of the most important texts on key topics of Buddhist thought and practice as well as authoring significant new sections of his own.

In this, the 14th volume, Kongtrul compiles the teachings on Severance, or Chöd. It includes some of the tradition's earliest source scriptures, such as the "grand poem" of Aryadeva and numerous texts by the tradition's renowned founder, Machik Lapdrön. Kongtrul also brings together the most significant texts on the rites of initiation, empowerments for practice, and wide-ranging instructions and guides for the support of practitioners. Altogether, this quintessential guide to Severance offers vast resources for scholars and practitioners alike to better understand this unique and remarkable tradition - the way of severing the ego through the profound realization of emptiness and compassion.

    "Not happy with the poor pronunciation :"

    It is a shame that Tom Pile did not inform himself from a genuine Tibetan Lama on how to pronounce the Tibetan words in the text properly.
    He does not even know how to pronounce such key words like
    "Chöd" or "Phat" !

    "A dream come true!"
    What made the experience of listening to Chöd the most enjoyable?

    This kind of book is a dream come true for practitioners of Tibetan Buddhism at large.<br/>And especially for those practicing Chöd. I truly hope this kind of projects are encouraged in the future so that more people who have reading disabilities or are just plain lazy can receive these wonderful teachings.
